Councilman Simplot Thanks March Participants, Hosts Two More
Councilman Tom Simplot thanks District 4 residents who participated in a crime march to take back Phoenix streets. The march earlier this month was held by residents of the Isaac neighborhood as a show of unity against crime.
Approximately 50 people participated, cheering during their evening walk. Marchers included residents, members of Neighborhood Activists Inter-Linked Empowerment Movement (NAILEM) and District 4 staff.
“This is a show of support to all residents of the Isaac neighborhood that we care and that the city cares about crime in our community,” said Simplot. “We are working hard to combat crime in a neighborhood with one of the highest rates in the city. I will not stop until I see all District 4 residents safe.”
District 4 and neighborhood activists will hold two more crime marches in coming weeks, at 7 p.m. Saturday, June 4 and June 11. Both marches will start at Butler Elementary School, 3843 W. Roosevelt St. For more information about the crime marches or to report issues of concern in the district, send an e-mail or call 602-262-7447.
